It will be the only 5-star category of Cubanacán hotel group on the entire north coast of eastern Cuba. Its 514 rooms will allow to enter the international market with greater force in a third phase of recovery after Covid 19. Construction works have reached a final stage, and the completion by the end of this year will allow an eventual start of operations.
Yitsy Hernández, deputy director of the facility, points out the work is approximately 90 percent complete, with the a fundamental area, which includes the main block, plus two residential blocks, as well as service areas with a buffet, restaurants and snack. In a second stage, a royal floor will be completed, with pool and service areas, plus another block of rooms.
The new hotel will also have a Spa, a water park and a VIP bar, at the top of the main building. It not only raises the quality standards of the country's tourist options, but also marks the continuity of a development strategy for the sector on the Holguín coast.
This is confirmed by Yaima Suarez, MINTUR sub-delegate in Holguín: “It is an opportunity to explore new market segments and potential clients not only in Canada but also in Europe, who are looking for new facilities, high comfort, good service and a varied offer. In addition, it will show the world everything that has been done in the territory in terms of tourism processes."
As in the rest of hotel and non-hotel facilities on the island, it is committed to a gradual reopening of tourism, in compliance with strict sanitary protocols in the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic. El Almirante will rise to the level of its 5 stars, as one of the most attractive tourist options in eastern Cuba.
